I'm moving at the end of this month to a new location and I was wondering will my auto insurance company automatically be notified by the registry, or do I have to contact them myself of my change of address. Thanks4 AnswersInsurance & Registration10 years ago
Me and a friend are looking for apartments in Boston, Massachusetts. We want an apartment close to downtown, but the rents are very high. I've been seeing a number of apartments advertised as "1+ bed" or "1 bed with a study". How big is the standard office/study in a 1+ bedroom apartment? Is it large enough for someone to live in?1 AnswerRenting & Real Estate1 decade ago
If you send an email to someone on zoosk (online dating), will their response show if your not a full member?
I'm just wondering for anyone who's used the dating website zoosk, if I email someone, will I receive their email or not? (since I'm not a full paying "premium" member). Will I at least know if they sent me something and its not getting through since I'm not a member? I'm asking because I've emailed a few girls and got no responses. It does show up that they looked at my profile, so I'm hopeful they aren't just fake profiles.

Two months back, I bought a new mountain bike, a Trek 3500 7-speed hardtail. To my surprise, my 7th gear cog cracked while I was riding yesterday. Now the entire cassette is loose. I can't believe I actually managed to crack a cog on a virtually brand new bike with less than 500 miles on it! This bike has never been ridden in the rain and has primarily been used for commuting. I've owned trek bikes for over 10 years now and it feels like the quality has really gone downhill. I guess that's what happens when even high-end bikes are made in China.
Well needless to say, I'm thinking about just scrapping the entire cassette and getting a new one. I really don't care about how many speeds it has. Honestly, I probably use only 4 out of my 7 gears anyways. I just need something strong that wont crack like glass. Are there any companies out there that make cassettes with thicker, more durable cogs?3 AnswersCycling1 decade ago
I recently went out with a girl on a short lunch date (which is why I say "second" date. It was only an hour or so long. She's real nice, though we only talked about small stuff, chit-chat mostly getting to know each other. I slipped in a few compliments. As we left, she mentioned about doing it again sometime. I asked her what she was doing next weekend. She said she pretty much lives day by day and she's not sure when she'll be free, but she'll let me know.
How should I proceed? My usual strategy is that after the first date, I wait 3 days for the following Monday/Tuesday, then call and say "I had a great time...(small talk)... what are you doing this Friday/Saturday?". By her saying she'll let me know, its really thrown my game plan all off. Is she interested in me, or was she just being friendly to not hurt my feelings? If its any relevance, we didn't hug goodbye and certainly didn't kiss goodbye. Should I call her or should I wait for her to contact me?
Can a company you're applying to find out about your employment history (i.e. every job you worked at)?
I've been applying for jobs recently now that I'm about to graduate from college. My job history is as follows:
My 1st job was at a retail store from 2003-05 while I was a junior/senior in high school. It's complicated, but basically I accidentally walked off their property with something that belonged to them, so they fired me (officially it was "involuntary termination")
My 2nd job was another retail job which I worked at for over 3 years from 2005-08 while I was commuting to a Community College. After I graduated, I transferred to another college to finish up my Bachelors. I quit this job because of the commute.
My 3rd job was at a supermarket in fall 08' across from my new college, but the hours conflicted with my school work and management refused to let me change my availability during the probationary period (90 days). After 2 months, I just stopped showing up and they sent me a letter saying I was "voluntarily terminated".
On my resume and applications, I usually only put down my second job from 05-08 since that was really the only solid job I have. I generally tell potential employers that I didn't work before 2005, and omit my supermarket job, saying that since 2008 I've solely concentrated on school. I'm wondering if its possible for employers to find out about the other two jobs I've worked at during a background/employment history check.1 AnswerOther - Careers & Employment1 decade ago
After the third Valentine's Day in a row without a girlfriend, I decided to try online dating last month. I went on this program on facebook called "zoosk". I emailed a girl on there and she responded back. It was mostly small talk.
Emailing isn't a very good way to get to know each other so we agreed last week to meet up for lunch this coming Friday (couldn't do it last Friday because it was the end of spring break for her and she was busy moving back to school). We exchanged numbers, but I've yet to call her. I was wondering if I should call her in advance like a day or 2 before the date to confirm with her or chat with her first? Or should I just wait until I get to the restaurant? This is my first time ever meeting someone through online dating.7 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
First off, I put "date" in quotes for a reason. I met this girl a couple months back at a friend's party. We've been talking to each other off and on for the last few months on facebook. Last Saturday, we went out. It wasn't really a date, but rather a day hanging out downtown. We did spend the whole day and night together mostly talking about everything. I'm very interested in her, but need some advise how soon I should call her up for a second "date".
We talked about things to do together like ice skating, etc and I was thinking about calling her up tonight (Tuesday) to see what she's doing this weekend. Is it too soon?5 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I recently moved into a new apartment. Its located on the first floor of a three floor building. When I first looked at the apartment, I didn't notice that the entire building is at a slight slant. I'm not sure of this is due to construction on elevated terrain or simply due to poor construction, but there is a definite slant going on, probably a degree or two.
I'm wondering if this can cause any health effects like nausea, dizziness, etc. I woke up this morning with both these feelings, but I'm not entirely sure if its due to the apartment or simply due to the stress of unpacking. I was up most of the night unpacking and I still haven't gotten my bed to the apartment so I had slept on the floor on pads and cushioning.

Well after years of not using sunscreen lotion, I've developed an annoying farmer's tan. I don't go outside all that often and I always wear hats, but my tan is probably due to years of exposure since I was a kid. I was wondering if its possible to reverse this. Please don't give me advise on tanning my whole body because I don't want to or like looking darker. I just want to know if its possible to lighten back my arms and face?1 AnswerOther - Skin & Body1 decade ago
So there's the girl at my college that I want to ask out. I knew her a while back through one of my roommates, like 4 semesters ago. This summer I've been going to the gym at my college and I've run into her at least half a dozen times (she works at the college library). We small chat sometimes or just say hi. I'm really interested in asking her out, but don't really know how I should start and more importantly what exactly I should ask. I have alot of ideas from light ones like lunch to stronger ones like going to a movie, outdoor activities, or even a theme park. What do you think I should do? Mind you, we aren't really friends at this point, more just casual acquaintances. Should I try talking to her more before asking her out?
btw: if its at all relevant, we're friends on facebook and I know she's single.5 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I should explain first why I'm calling it a third "date" in quotations. I met this girl a while back last semester in college. Three weekends ago, we both went out to an amusement park, just casually as friends. We had a great time together, our personalities hit off perfectly. We had dinner afterwards. Just before I dropped her off, I asked her out on a date and she said yes. The following Tuesday I called her and asked her out that coming Saturday; however, she confessed to me that she had just got out of a long-term relationship and didn't want to go into another right away. We agreed to take it slow. She was busy that weekend, but the following week she called me and asked what I was doing that Saturday night. We ended up hanging out together at my apartment watching a movie, drinking, etc. I didn't entirely flirt with her that much, but we talked alot and had alot of fun together. I didn't want to push her too much in case she doesn't feel ready. She told me she had a great time and asked me what I'm doing this week. I'm trying to think of ideas now for what we should do the 3rd time we meet.
I also need advise as to whether I should start flirting more, or if you think it might be too early in case she's not ready yet. I'm kinda walking a fine line here because I'm almost positive she likes me and I certainly like her, but I don't want to come on too strong and scare her off if she's not ready. I don't have any experience really with this type of situation (girl coming out of a long previous relationship)
Last semester in college, I met this amazing girl. Me and her would talk all the time in class. In fact, once our professor threatened to split us up if we didn't stop (it was like High School). Recently the two of us went out (casually) to a theme park last weekend. We had a great time, talked a lot, shared our personalities, etc. Both of us have so much in common and it felt like the next step was to ask her out. Just before I dropped her off at her house, I asked her if she wanted to go out on a date next week. She said yes, and everything was cloud 9. Now several days later, I called her up to confirm it, and she's grown very hesitant. She said she just got out of a long-term relationship and that she thinks its too soon to go into another relationship. She did say she would like to hang out. I asked her if she wanted to take it slow and she said yes. I'm wondering whether its worth it to pursue this with the ultimate goal of entering into a relationship, or if we should just stay friends. I really like her a lot and I felt we connect perfectly. I think we could have a great relationship together, but I don't want to force her to do something she doesn't want to do. Anyone have any thoughts or personal experiences with this?4 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
Well I recently met this girl at my friend's bday party. I've actually met her several times before, but we exchanged phone numbers at the party. Eventually we went out on our first date, which went phenomenally, a nice dinner then we went back to her place to watch a comedy. we even took a walk along the beach, then kissed goodnight. Overall it was perfect. We both agreed we had a great time. I tried calling her 2 days later, but she didn't pick up. I then emailed her letting her know what a wonderful time i had and that I'd like to do it again. She replied back that even though she also had a great time, she felt as though she cant date for a while and that she's still trying to get passed her previous relationship. This came as a shock to me. I really did enjoy every moment together and it felt as though we could make a real meaningful relationship. What should I do? Should I try staying friends with her and take it slow? Or does it sound like she doesnt want any relationship?
